Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

Hi You have assembled your oil tank as I found mine during dis-assembly, (can't say if that's original until I've scraped the paint off) and there's no additional attachment to the rear of the seat mount other than that on the diagonal brace on mine. That stud is just a normal one on my bike: Stud 1...

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2019

Hi This is how my new project, a 58 FH arrived: C Stand Pivot.png Would it be correct to assume this is a common occurrence? On an associated point, I see Tilly has a grease nipple fitted to the rear brake cable, would this be an original design and if so is it available to purchase anywhere? I can'...

Spire Fastenings

Hi The dis-assembly of my 58 FH is going quite well but it has raised a question, (possibly heretical on here ;) ), in my mind. Do spire fixings perform well as designed? Particularly the ones securing the rear portion of the rear mudguard and numberplate. Do people replace the spire fixings with st...

Re: Clutch dome

Hi From your photo with the dome removed it looks like the lower stud is bent, the bend is not in the direction of rotation of the clutch and therefore the stud seems to have been loosened either before or by the incident. I wonder if the stud becoming loose was the cause of the detents in the cup a...

Re: FH primary alignment?

Hi
I'm certainly no FH expert but have just started a restoration of one.
GB44 main shaft lengths are detailed in section 19 of the Draganfly catalogue - I also received clarification from the 'Forum', see my post earlier in this section titled GB44 Main Shaft

Re: Cyclone engine

Hi
Sorry for the hijack, but can anyone tell me the significance of the 'FC' - I have a 58 GB44 similarly marked.

Re: What's Wrong With This 58 FH?

Thanks Battery carrier is now off the bike and shows no sign of repair, (the rough area in previous photo looks as if it is corrosion damage painted over). It is a one piece folded and pressed item, (unlike the built up version on Draganfy), which leads me to think it is original though perhaps not ...
